A Waterbed That Lives Up to Its Name
Light, small, mobile—everything you’ll need in a bed-boat hybrid
Looking for short-term accommodation while enjoying urban rivers? Daniel Durnin, a graduate from the Royal College of Art in the United Kingdom, has created a hybrid of the traditional boat and waterbed where the floating structure offers both mobility and comfort to the user. Not surprisingly, he calls it the WaterBed.
Durnin had three goals in mind when he designed the WaterBed. First, the WaterBed aims to provide shelter for people who want to spend time outdoors, whether on water or land. Second, while riding the WaterBed, the riders can enjoy the view around them due to its open space design. And lastly, Durnin wanted to make sure that the WaterBed won’t be a pain to carry around. Hence, designing it with wheels to allow a bike to tow it easily.
